think i'm still here. [laughter] >> no way. >> i sort of feel like the rest of sandy koufax pitching staff. following these guys. but i did have the privilege and that jack well from several different perspectives. maybe just to relate a couple of them. first, as hanks said, i started as even more green. the front row can tell you. the atlanta constitution, when i was 21 years old in 1969. jack had just come out of the army. jack has started when he was 23 years old in 1952. these dates are kind of interesting because the book is called evolution of a southern reporter. at the word evolution is really an important part of the. jack was 23 years old. at 29 years old he won the pulitzer prize. in 1970. and 75, as has been mentioned, he went to the l.a. times. and in 70 he went to washington. the man. sixty-five. sixty-five. 6570. he was the gunmen during that time. he accomplished all of those wonderful stories. of course when i arrive there he was an atlanta. he was still based atlanta. he really wasn't in atlanta. he was traveling all over the place where the movement was at the time
